Biography summary

Economic cost and burden of allergy is significant worldwide, which can be difficult to manage and can prove fatal. I head the NeuroAllergy Research Laboratory (NARL) and Deakin AIRwatch pollen and spore counting and forecasting facility. The focus of my research is the environmental and molecular biology of allergens and the allergic reaction, including Epidemic Thunderstorm Asthma (ETSA) events, and identify novel inhibitors for allergy prevention and treatment. My group also research the importance of epigenetics and BACE1 in human neurodegeneration to develop novel intervention strategies for Alzheimer's disease. In addition to my research, I teach Level 2 Microbiology and Level 3 Medical Microbiology and Immunology, which are core units of Deakin's Bachelor of Biomedical Science program.

 

Research projects:

1. Pollen and food allergy: molecular analysis and novel intervention strategies

2. Grass pollen triggered epidemic thunderstorm asthma (ETSA) events

3. Deakin AIRwatch: airborne pollen and spore counting and forecasting facility

4. Importance of omega-3 fatty acids in brain cell survival and epigenetics

5. BACE1 inhibitors as novel intervention strategies for Alzheimer's disease
